India welcomes US 'Asia pivot'

Washington, February 06:

India welcomes the US engagement in Asia Pacific as New Delhi's vision is to create a web of inter-linkages for shared prosperity and security, according to Indian ambassador Nirupama Rao.

"We want the Indian Ocean and Asia-Pacific regions to develop into a zone of cooperation rather than one of competition and domination," she said at Brown University, a private Ivy League research university in Providence, Rhode Island.

"We would like to work for an open, inclusive and transparent architecture of regional cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region, where all major powers in Asia and beyond work together to address the traditional and non-traditional challenges and to create a basis for a stable and prosperous Asia," she said.

"These are the challenges that cut across national boundaries and require cooperative responses," added Rao speaking Monday on "America's 'Asian Pivot': The View from India," at the opening seminar of the Spring 2013 Brown-India Initiative Seminar Series.

"Based on this vision, we welcome the US engagement in the Asia of the Indo-Pacific. The continuance of economic growth and prosperity in both our countries is in many ways linked to the opportunities for growth and prosperity in this region," she said.

"It is a space that impacts our destinies, whose security and prosperity is vital to both of us, and where we have an increasing convergence of interests," Rao said.

India, she said will continue to deepen its engagement with the United States and other partners in the Asia-Pacific region with the goal to promote their collective prosperity, stability and security.

Noting that, the "wellbeing of Asia is equally dependent on the resolution of strife and violence in countries like Afghanistan and the defeat of non-state actors who perpetrate a terrorist agenda in countries like Pakistan," Rao said; "This must be kept in focus as we look to the future."
